Savas Shoe Repair
260 Elm St.
While longtime sole man Arthur Savas might not, as one pal jokes affectionately, “win any personality contests,” he is undoubtedly a shoe’s best friend: re-heeling, re-soling, and otherwise patching up even the saddest specimens. But could he handle the spanking-new Pradas with the torn fabric-covered heel? Savas protested we were expecting too much...yet a week later the job was done, the work irreproachable.
